New Baby Gift is well received :)

A FOP (friend of platine) just sent us this picture, and I couldn't resist it.

You see, she is celebrating the birth of her new baby brother (notice the 'it's a boy' cookie is half eaten!) platine style. The new mom sent us rave reviews of how the entire family enjoyed the Personalized Welcome Baby tin. We sent them one of the Baby Boy tins and even added the new baby's name and monogram to some of the cookies.
Here's a picture of some of the contents of the baby boy tin:

If you are looking for a great gift for new parents - definitely send them one of these tins, after all, there are only so many baby blankets that can fit in the linen closet, and platine cookies definitely taste better!

Platine on "Good Food on KCRW"

Yesterday, Harriet Ells from Good Food on KCRW, came into the bakery to see what we are cooking up for Julia Child's birthday. We chatted about how cooking has changed over the past 50 plus years, yet with that said, Julia's recipes still work today.

Enjoy the video and be on the look out for the winning recipe!
